On the spur of the moment I decided to take an impromptu trip to Calgary for the Stampede. I cashed in one of my free weekend nights (earned through Starwood Preferred Guest points) and got a lovely suite at the Eau Claire. Usually, I prefer to stay at Westin hotels so I wasn't sure what to expect of the Sheraton but I was delighted!!!
Since the Stampede I have stayed at both the Westin in Downtown Calgary and the Sheraton Cavalier (by the airport) and I have to say the Sheraton Eau Claire is the best of the bunch.
The hotel itself is located right near the Eau Claire market. I love the easy walking convenience to Chinatown (try the MBA BBQ and Noodle House), the Eau Claire Market itself (right across the street), parks, downtown, and public transportation. Now parking isn't the easiest to find but if you're staying at the hotel over the weekend you can have a full day of parking for $2 just across the street.
The rooms are suite style so they contain a small kitchenette, a living area with a television, a bathroom, and a separate bedroom area with yet another television. The style of the hotel is not as sleek or modern as a Westin but it is extremely comfortable and wonderfully appointed. I also ate at the hotel restaurant for their Stampede Breakfast and based on that meal I recommend it highly!
The service was fantastic, hotel staff always helpful, and it is the best value for my money in Calgary!
